“To immediately stop violence on the ground, restore peace in the communities and provide enabling environment conducive to the resumption of the peace talks, I am now announcing a unilateral ceasefire with the CPP/ NPA/NDF effective immediately. And call on our Filipinos in the National Democratic Front and its forces to respond accordingly.”
” Let me make this appeal to you: ” If we cannot, as yet, love one another, then in God’s name, let us not hate each other too much, so it was said, I say the same to you today.”
Nawa’y ito na nga ang maging tamang panahon upang ang tatlong malalaking pulo ng Pilipinas ay muling maging isang bansang may iisang layunin. Ang mga sugat at pagkakawatak-watak na hatid ng matagal nang digmaan, sana ay mapalitan na ng kapayapaan at pagkakaisa.
